, exploitive and let's be candid obama's moral outrage is highly selective. he feels the grief of people who can advance his cause more than those who don't. for example, remember obama downplayed the fort hood massacre, a muslim extremist shot on the military base. that was so-called workplace violence, that wasn't terrorism and obama's message is that even if there's one thing we can do to reduce this violence, even if there's one life that can be saved then we've got an obligation to try. is that really the standard, mr. president? because if it is, well, you need to apply that across the board, meaning is it now an obligation to ban motorcycles, bicycles, knives, et cetera? see how ridiculous it is to set up that standard that the government should take any action necessary as quote, as long as it saves even one life. now, the third, when barack obama read from the letters of children, it reminded me of the 1980's, remember the presidential debate, jimmy carter revealed to us, he had talked to his 12-year-old daughter, amy, about nuclear proliferation. now, children, they do have wonderf

getting scary in that part of the world. here at home, poor president obama can't win for losing. yesterday he was slammed by critics for inviting four kids from around the country to join him on stage as he talked about his proposals for gun control. in other words it's okay to mow down 20 first graders in newtown, connecticut but it's not okay to invite four kids to the white house to talk about how to keep them safe from guns. these people are nuts! all right. more about that and a whole lot more. but first here we go. the latest, today's current news update lisa ferguson standing by out in los angeles. early good morning to you lisa. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. 23 executive actions and a big to do list for congress all in the works now after president obama's announcement yesterday on the future of gun control. not surprisingly, not everyone so keen on what the president had to say yesterday. some republican state legislators have their own plan and that is to secede from any new federal regulations that they think go too far. according to the constitution, that is cl
president obama held the press conference of the first term nrk some respects a nearly perfect encapulation of what a reckless man he is. there are three points that we can take away from this. the first has to do with hypocrisy. obama blasted republican who's want to tie raising debt keeling to cutting spending. renz who do so, obama said they risk the full faith and credit of the united states and to do so is irresponsible. the consequences would be quote, a disaster, he made it sound like only an anarcihist would pose raising the debt keeling. >> what i will not do is have that negotiation with a gun at the head of the american people. the threat unless we get our way, unless you gut medicare or medicaid or if otherwise slash things that the american people don't believe should be slashed, that we're going to threaten to wreck the entire economy. look. i -- i don't think anyone would consider my position unreasonable here, democrats don't like voting for the debt ceiling when there is a republican president. but you never saw a situation in which democrats suggested somehow that we would
